Richard Ashton

Richard Ashton

Our head coach and box owner Rich, aka “Ricardo”, with a whole range of quirky attributes can easily be described as super friendly with a positive attitude! With many years of experience in the fitness industry, L2 certified and Precision Nutrition qualified, he is extremely passionate about his box. Since opening CFM’s doors back in 2013, he is continually building his knowledge and developing a solid platform for which the coaches and members can thrive. Always there to help, to talk to or crack a joke… you can count on him. Except if its about hair-care… you probably don’t want any advice from him. Ricardo lives in a world where there are no problems…only solutions!

Adrienne Hajko

Our most recent addition is our smiling beauty Adri, all the way from Hungary. Driven, energetic and focused on her desire to learn…whether developing herself as an athlete or coaching her classes, she has the patience of a saint. Adri thrives on watching people achieve their goals ensuring every individual is moving safely and feeing comfortable, all while making sure they are enjoying every single minute! A qualified personal trainer, L1 certified and former pro basketball player…give this plant-based power house a ball or a barbell and she’ll give you a run for your money… always with a big smile!

Ivanna Emilia

Ivanna Emilia

Originally a CrossFit Marbella member back in 2013, Ivanna is now the first friendly face you’ll see when you arrive at the box and the friendly voice that you hear on the phone. Always on hand to help, she helps create the fantastic energy we have in the box. Anything you need assistance with… “la jefa” is the one to ask. Having just finished her Accountancy and Finance Degree, and currently studying for her Masters in Financial Management and Controlling. She balances her work, study and training always with 100% dedication and a big smile. Watch out for her training in your class… she isn’t called Ivanna “Davidsottir” for nothing.

Pedro Kenneth Lonnblad

Pedrito is not only one of our most valued L1 certified CrossFit coaches, but our in-house Physiotherapist too. Having him in our team is a huge asset to our community of members, and they just can’t get enough of him! Able to conduct a class in English, Spanish and Swedish, he lovingly devotes time and energy trying to help improve everybody while using an abundance of cues… a guarantee you will never leave a class without learning something new. Not to mention his awesome dancing skills…so don’t be surprised if you catch him dancing around in the box with a cup of coffee in one hand and pvc pipe in the other! That’s just the way he rolls.

Fui a Crossfit Marbella por primera vez para hacer un reto de 6 semanas e intentar comprender porque mi pareja pagaba por dar vueltas a una rueda!!! Casi un año y medio después…sigo aquí, en el primer lugar que ha conseguido que incorpore el deporte a mi rutina diaria. No solo he visto como mi cuerpo cambiaba poco a poco, sino que además ya no necesito recurrir a la medicina por los frecuentes dolores de espalda derivados de mi trabajo en la oficina. Me siento más fuerte y capaz de conseguir cada objetivo que me proponga. Y se que puedo porque, aunque te fallen las fuerzas, lo mejor que me ha dado Crossfit es la comunidad de amigos que están siempre a tu alrededor para animarte a ser la mejor versión de ti. Gracias por tanto

Hace poco empecé a practicar yoga tras una lesión. Ahora he ganado flexibilidad y equilibrio, además estoy controlando mi respiración. Se ha convertido en un complemento perfecto para el crossfit.

Hace ya tres años que comencé en Crossfit Marbella y soy incapaz de abandonar. Cuando conocí este deporte, pensé que era un imposible para mi, pero mis entrenadores me animaron desde el minuto uno convirtiéndome en una adicta a este deporte. Te planteas la vida desde otra perspectiva. Es como si al lograr entrar en este mundo, ya no hay nada imposible. Te sientes capaz de practicar cualquier deporte. Que hay que correr 800 metros más, sin problema, ahí están nuestros entrenadores animándonos a conseguir otro imposible. Yo personalmente tengo mucho que agradecer a Crossfit Marbella, ahí conocí a mi mejor amiga, mi partner de mi alma !!! Es mi familia. Aunque faltemos, ya sea el tiempo o el motivo que sea, ellos siempre nos reciben con una sonrisa, un abrazo y con mucho cariño, volviendo a acogernos como el primer día. ¿Qué es Crossfit Marbella para mí?: mi motivación, mi superación, donde me evado del mundo, donde tengo mis amigos, mi hogar !!!!

Richard Ashton is the owner of “CrossFit Marbella” and runs such a tight well organised ship, he is totally motivational and is such a amazing individual – the “CrossFit Marbella” coaches Pedro &  Adri go way beyond the extra mile to ensure they know you personally and your capabilities – monitoring you constantly to make sure the fundamental form, proper technique is correct before carrying out any workout, giving us all tips on diet, resting periods etc.. –all through the workouts they are constantly feeding you words of encouragement. I have made some fantastic friends – and I would have no hesitation in recommending “CrossFit Marbella” they are like family!  I have at last found somewhere that I feel comfortable going to, to get an all over work out, and every time I finish my workout, I come away feeling totally motivated, stronger and fitter so Thank you “CrossFit Marbella”

I originally heard about the world of CrossFit from my brother who thought I might enjoy it. Up until that point, my approach to fitness and nutrition had simply been what I’d picked up from magazines and internet but there was no real strategy behind any of it. I started training at CrossFit Marbella just over 3 years ago and it’s simply been the best decision I’ve made. CFM has given me a solid structure and variation to my fitness journey with unrivalled group support and a great feeling of community. My experience at CFM continues to be outstanding. The culture at CrossFit Marbella is amazing and has been created by the top class coaches and community of welcoming members. It is one of support and encouragement. From my early days, the CFM coaches provided high quality programming and did so politely
